    Welcome to the IHoP v.2

    So the brake motivs are going to have to be removed. Too dusty and squeak. Any recommendations for replacements? Wouldn't mind doing OEM but they are way expensive. Is powerstop good? I really don't need/want drilled slotted, but that's what they seems to have.

    Had to give in and take my truck to the dealership. List price is $1k for a PCM. I was able to use my company discount and get it for $700. The whole deal is going to cost me $1100 to get back running

    That little beast can skip over the mud! Bet that's a blast. Especially with all your buddies carrying your gear! :p

    It looks like I should be able to get a junkyard PC for $80 bucks and not $800. If this works I'll still probably have to take it somewhere to do the key activation.

    So I think I know the issue, but I don't know how to correct it. The truck keeps throwing a code about the non-volatile RAM (NVRAM) that won't clear. I think what has happened is the programming "thinks" it's fine, and it is fine enough to start the engine, run like garbage, and throw a bunch of codes. THe SCT Tuner and the IDS system cannot not convince it to erase and re-write the programming. Each time I try to re-write the programming is does it quickly, says it was sent and everything is good to go. It makes me think it's doing a check and the check is saying everything is good to go. Similar issue with the calibration ( I assume these are separate). In one instance I was able to get it to try to really set the calibration. In doing so it shut down the entire system. I believe this to be because the programming is incorrect and thus the PCM can't accept the calibration. If I could find a way to truly ERASE the PCM and make it think it's blank as blank could be THEN program it, I think I could save buying another PCM. @Tirefryr, I'm going to see if FordTechMakuloco will be willing to shed light on the situation.

    Dealer quoted $800 just for the PCM

    Found a last ditch effort on the internet. Basically trick the situation by making leaving the truck off while it tries to connect. When it prompts you, you enter the info and then it reprograms the whole thing. It's how they reprogram junkyard PCMs. It works on slightly older models. I'm hoping my PCM isn't physically messed up and can be wiped clean.

    Found out you have to use other instead of connecting through the interface name. However, the system says it's accepting the programming and calibration but nothing is different. There was some point where I tried to update the calibration and it shut the how truck down until the ISD gave up trying to connect.

    SCT support couldn't help me this morning. I got IDS from work. When connecting it says it can't find the PCM unique identifier but gives me the option to type it in myself. Pic to follow

    I hope that's the case. I feel like the tuner should have been able to return it to stock no problem. The tuner pills the stock tune first thing.

    Yeah, I'm nervous that somehow I'm going to have to replace the ECM and I'm going to get charged out the wazoo. Guess I'll never make that mistake again.
